U.S. CONGRESS – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after a federal court blocked the Biden administration from ending President Trump’s Title 42 policy which allowed for the rapid expulsion of illegal immigrants.
“Montana is a northern border state with a southern border crisis, and it will only get worse if President Biden gets his way by rescinding Trump’s Title 42 immigration policy. I’ve been pushing back ever since Biden announced his absurd idea to end this immigration policy, and today, I’m glad to see a court temporarily block it from happening. Biden needs to stop putting illegal immigrants over Montanans, and secure the southern border,” Daines said.
Daines has been pushing the Biden administration to maintain Title 42 before President Biden’s decision was made:
On April 7, 2022, Daines sent a letter to the Biden administration continuing his push to secure the southern border and blasting President Biden’s disastrous decision to rescind Title 42.
Before the decision was made, Daines urged the Biden admin to keep Title 42 in place.
